Format

Yorkshire based five piece Hookworms return for their third foray into the extravagant world of dance music inspired indie. Released on Domino, Microshift is pressed on heavyweight 180g 12” vinyl for extra punch and clarity on the thumping four to the floor kick drums that feature heavily on the LP’s first two singles. The record’s debut track ‘Negative Space’ makes extensive use of this drum programming trope; acid synths and organs are layered over live guitars and drums to create driving rhythms and exciting textures that make Hookworms unique.

It’s not quite indie and it’s definitely not house music. Hookworms have developed a versatile sound that could be heard anywhere; a living room, in a DJ set at a club or on your headphones as you dance into work. If you don’t buy the record because of its unique and lively blend of two uplifting genres, buy it because its flexibility makes it excellent value for money.
